3 Day Tour hluhluwe Umfolozi 27-29 December 2011 - Tim Brown Tours


It was really raining Cats and Dogs!

I could hardly believe my eyes and my timing!

I  had a lovely couple with me from New Zealand who were probably not expecting anything near as much as we did see.

Day 1 was spent covering Rhino, Buffalo, Elephant(herd which crossed right infront of us on the road and a Displaying Bull), Zebra, Giraffe etc

Day 2 started with a bang at 5 am as we drove out the camp there was a Male Lion right in front of us! worth getting up at 4am…

Once we had spent our time with the Lion we headed further south viewing Rhino, Giraffe, Impala and not much else until I returned to the Tar road and bang there was 3 African Wild Dogs! Only the most Endangered Carnivore in Africa with 100 left in the park which is 960 km squared!

After our fill in them we hit a traffic jam which in the bush means one thing! CATS…

A whole Pride of 8 lay waiting in the bush next to the road and the best moment was to come, A scuffle between two males leading to growls and a Roar and one running onto the road! (if it wasnt for idiots who left there vehicles running it would have been even more impressive)

What a trip.

Day 3 we recapped in the bush and headed to Isimangeliso Wetland park or St Lucia as I know it. This was great for Em and Richard as they saw Hippos, crocs and Fish eagles close up. They also got a taste for some wierd art which hasnt moved in 2 weeks…

Passing Richards Bay Richard claimed it as his find and we continued to Pietermaritzburg when I dropped them off.

What a great tour.
